The latest in a series of films exploring the Branch Lines of England, many of which were lost during the Beeching cuts of the 1960s. Dorset’s lines were shared almost equally between the Great Western Railway and the London and South Western.

These lines varied from lightly built, rural railways carrying a low volume of traffic to the Swanage branch, which at times carried main line express locomotives. These railways conveyed goods in and out of the county, provided a vital role during the dark years of warfare and in happier times they allowed holidaymakers and day trippers to enjoy their visit to the seaside. Eminent railway historian and author Colin Maggs sheds light on a host of hidden treasures!
